Sportsbook puts up odds for possible Antonio Brown trade from Steelers
It don’t take long for the oddsmakers in Las Vegas to catch wind of Antonio Brown’s “trade me” threat.
Just hours after the Pittsburgh wide receiver took to social media to respond to a former Steelers employee’s comment implying that Brown would not have the impressive stats without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, online gambling site Bovada stepped in.
Important to note Antonio Brown’s trade tweet wasn’t directed at some random Twitter troll. This guy did Steelers public relations from 2010-2017, and spent all day yesterday ripping Brown. pic.twitter.com/uXnpQVUw60

Let the wagering begin.
Bovada set the line Monday afternoon if Brown would be traded before Nov. 14.
By looking at the numbers, it doesn’t look as if AB will be leaving the North Shore anytime soon.
If one wagered:
• Yes — +1,200 (bet $100 to win $1,200)
• No — -7,500 (bet $7,500 to win $100)

On Sunday, Brown had nine catches for 67 yards, third best on the team, after being targeted by Roethlisberger 17 times. Early in the fourth quarter, Brown was captured by a TV camera engaging in a heated confrontation with first-year offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner.
